Jake and Sophie (daughter of the gay friend from Alan’s single parent group) in the balcony..
Jake: You smell good.
Sophie: Yeah its my strawberry lip gloss.
Jake: Can I taste it?
Sophie: (Pouts her lips ready to kiss)
Jake: (Picks his finger, sweeps it across her lips and tastes it.)
Alan, Jake, Charlie watching TV sitting on the couch.
Alan: What are you doing?
Jake: I am eating lip gloss.
Ahh …One can’t get enough of them, one simply can’t get any of them, and the third just doesn’t want any of them.
Oh my favourite men..love them. Two and a half men.
Opening the wardrobe and thinking what to wear..what to pick from my formals collection. Felt good. Like a piece of the routine.
On my way to work right now..in the cab…kinda anxious..goin after two months..excited.
Guess its time for new additions to this place. The melancholic feel of this place has to have something positive to it. Dont know what more additons but for starters a random tid bit of what made me smile, feel happy, inspired and alive will get posted under this tag.
I am going to one of my team member’s wedding today. Its a conscious effort for me too stay strong and feel normal in a huge crowd. But this is the only way I can get back to my familiar surroundings with a new altered perception.
I am getting my treatment done in a different city and have come down to mumbai for a week just so that I feel in touch with my life again rather than living as a recluse in that city until the treatment gets over. Though I have my family there, what I miss is the routine of this life, the daily travel to work, the hustle and bustle of work, weekend getaways with friends, playing kids in the park of my complex, the comforting slip into my favourite sofa and watching TV…the feel of MY life the way it was. I am back but with a heavy sense of disorientation yet with an intense sense of familiarity. So, today will be a gradual step towards entering the old life with a new outlook.
So off I go to the wedding and meet all my friends and team members. I have been very fortunate to have a team and boss who is all like a family and they all have been very very supportive of my situation. I am all excited to meet them..
So off i go to Firangi Paani..
